Does DVDPlanet still buy used DVD's?

Went to the "used" section on the site, and the Quote Machine function is gone. Anyone know if this is a permanent thing?

It appears they are "retooling" the used disc quote machine:

Site Update:
The Quote Machine is being taken
down temporarily for a maintenance.
We will be back up and purchasing discs on
March 31, 2008.

The site yesterday said Feb 18...

No, a rep in customer service told me they had to catch up and then start buying again

Well hopefully this is true, because I have a stack of almost 50 movies I am waiting to sell.

I just noticed that their "used" section isn't on the site anymore.

^ I hope that the complete removal of the Used section is temporary. While they sometimes take too long to process my used DVD exchanges, I do like the ability to throw a few Criterions in my cart, use a coupon and call it an even swap.

Let's hope it comes back.

If you type "used" into the seach it will show up again. There is no change though. I gave up for the most part and started to sell stuff on Amazon. Hopefully Ill be able to sell most of my stuff on there before they get back up. So far so good, I am matching or beating what I would have received at DVDPlanet. I was trying to hold out though since they were giving by FAR the best return on Used Discs. Since they pushed it another month though I had to act since I was getting pressure from the "Boss" to get rid of some of the collection.
